Simple Beauty

Seeing things differently can sometimes be a challenge. I am taking my second Visual Poetry On-Line Course called Digital Layers with Susan Tuttle . It is such a wonderfully nurturing place to learn. This course is really forcing us to experiment with PSE and applying layers to photos to ultimately do photo collage. I spent yesterday morning taking pictures that I can use as textured layers; concrete, tree bark, grass, bricks, mossy stones. It is so cool to see what effect it makes when you apply it to something so simple as a rose. I really encourage you to seek out one of Susan's course if you are interested in photo-manipulation. Her new book Digital Expressions is fantastic, too. I will share my creations with you as I go.

Your rose is beautiful! (so is your little ballerina pup). I love PSE I think I will have to go and buy Susan's book. My only problem is having a new enough computer to handle the software. As of right now, every time I open up too much on PhotoShop my computer crashes! Have a great weekend -take lots of pictures!
